Figure Painting in Oils

Back to oils

February 7, 2023

Sometimes I think my art journey is one of painting in oils, loving it, slowly straying away from it into digital work, and then rediscovering oils and how much I love them. I’m in the rediscovery phase, once again, and loving the hell out of oils.

Portrait practice

I needed to paint some more portraits for the Paint Figures Better portrait painting demo, so here we go! Good chance to dive into studying again for a bit.

Memento Mori Mug

January 16, 2023

I made a new Memento Mori mug because I’m a sucker for stoicism and coffee. I needed a new mug anyway and this has been a great companion over the last few weeks. I’m not really intending to sell a lot of these, but if you want one, you can buy a mug on my store here.


Ref and brushes from Rachel. Trying to work on improving my edge control. It’s a thing that seems to be really lacking in my work and I want to fix that.

Always learning.

Study from our new reference pack, Fay.

2022 in art

January 1, 2023

This is most of the art that I made this past year. There are also hundreds of figure drawings not seen here. There was also a little bit of traditional drawing/painting, but not very much. That’s something I’d like to do more of in 2023. Hold me to that if you don’t see me cranking out oil paintings soon.

A study of Rosetta from our new reference pack, Figure Drawing: Rosetta. Felt great to be back to painting figures. It had been too long since I did any of these and I was certainly rusty at first. But I think the time away from them taught me a lot.
